. there was no clear consensus about what is the ultimate goal of the united states and europe. is the goal of the one hand or is this just a customs union? it's so dissimilar as many have pointed to the formation of the united states. but here again the idea was let's not try to reach agreement on the end result because there is no consensus but let's take a step at a time and develop the institutions necessary as the problems come up. what wasn't perceived as the context of which the huge decisions would have to be taken was the mother of all financial crises from the united states. so, the pressures are far greater than we are anticipating and the year being forced into making big decisions. we are going to find out if they are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to sustain and. yesterday the peterson institute presented an interesting study of spain and italy whether it was sustainable the conclusion is of the plausible scenarios and the answer is yes. under the circumstances it seemed to me surprising if the project would be abandoned in a sense in that context. >> we and interesting meeting

the bush administration ignored repeated warnings about osama bin laden's plans to attack the united states. writing in "the new york times," journalist and author kurt eichenwald reports the bush administration dismissed a number of warnings of an al qaeda attack in u.s. beginning in the spring of 2001, instead focusing on saddam hussein. in one assessment, eichenwald writes -- some counterterrorism officials were so dismayed with the administration's response that they discussed seeking a transfer so that others would be blamed when the attack on the u.s. eventually took place. the suggestion was dismissed because there would not be enough time to train replacements. the u.s. military has disclosed a guantanamo prisoner died over the weekend in his cell. the victim's identity has not been released, but he is said to have taken part in a hunger strike in the prison earlier this year. he is believed to be the ninth foreign prisoner to die at guantanamo since the u.s. began jailing foreigners there in 2002. several prisoners have taken their own lives. the u.n.'s top human rights official ha
